When You Think a Loved One has Been a Victim of Medical Malpractice or Pharmaceutical Negligence
According to a Johns Hopkins University study, medical errors are the third leading cause of death.
When it comes to causes of death, sometimes what is listed on the death certificate may not provide the complete picture of why your loved one died. Sometimes it may only state "cardiac arrest," which may, in fact, be the last thing that happened before your loved one died, but it does not explain what led to the "cardiac arrest." In other words, was cardiac arrest a natural event or was it due to the act or omission of an individual or entity that was caring for your loved one? You, as a close friend or family member, often have very good intuition about your loved one and if something is just not right.
If you suspect that a loved one died or was injured, unexpectedly, during a routine or low risk medical procedure or something happened unexpectedly while in or after leaving the emergency room, they may have a potential claim. Additionally, if a loved one was prescribed the wrong medication, the wrong dosage, or given a medicine that they should not take while taking other medications, they may have a potential claim. Also, if you suspect that a medical procedure was unnecessary or that you were overcharge or charged for something that you did not receive, you may have a claim.
In order for us to evaluate the claim, please preserve any photographs of injuries, text messages, email or voice mail from medical providers, billing records, medical records, prescription vials, prescription medication or anything else that may be useful in proving your claim.
